According to Jeuxvideo, one of the biggest gaming sites in France, Microsoft will be revealing two next-gen consoles, codenamed Xbox Lockhart and Anaconda, at this year’s E3.

As previously rumoured, Lockhart will be the cheaper variant of Anaconda, with no disc tray, essentially making it a streaming and download box. Anaconda will be the more powerful of the two, with a disc tray. Both consoles will have SSDs for faster load time.

In its report, Jeuxvideo also talked about the leaked specs of the consoles and they are as follows,
